This feature allows to load members of Facebook groups into the software. Findings will appear under the corresponding group in Facebook->Groups tab in the software.

Requirements

Before using this feature, please make sure you have the following:

  1. At least one validated Facebook account - this account will be used to search for group meberts on Facebook. If you specify multiple accounts, the software will be able to use them in parallel.
  2. One or more Facebook group - usually obtained by doing a prior search for Facebook groups.

How to use this feature

There are several ways to start the wizard:

  • Go to Main menu->Wizards->Facebook and select the wizard there.
  • Go to Facebook->Groups tab in the software and select one or more groups that you want to load. Next, click right mouse button and select Load group members

In the wizard window, you will be able to select the list of Facebook groups (if you started the wizard from within Facebook->Groups tab, then the list of groups will already be populated based on your selection)

You will need to specify one or more Facebook accounts that will be used to perform the search. Usually one account is enough.

Next, enter the number of group members you need to load. This number applies to each of the selected groups. For example, if you selected 3 groups and entered 10 group members, then the software will load 10 members from each of the 3 groups, 30 members altogether.

Group members will be placed into the campaign of the corresponding group.

Finally, you can set the Schedule for this task. If left empty, the task will start immediately, as soon as you click "Finish" button. Otherwise, it will be scheduled to run at the time (or times) of your choice. This article covers scheduling feature in detail.
